These classes are virtual and will be held weekly at 6 PM PST on Tuesday. To make full use of the program it's important students can be there for a majority of the classes. But we understand life happens so you it's okay if you miss a couple. The final Demo-Day Pitch Event will be a hybrid event, with the physical location being in East Palo Alto.

This program is best suited for those with businesses that are in the early stages of establishment, with either a fleshed-out business model or legally established (LLC, company-formation, etc.) If you are still ideating and figuring out your business idea, we recommend taking our Intro to Hustle Class or Hustle II: Branding offered each quarter for free!

This engagement will be facilitated by Streetcode Academy and top entrepreneurial talent.

Some other benefitss include:

  • $2,000 in funding
